We took a look at alchemy and discovered that most of the principals were focused on the medicinal and spiritual uses of plants. Men and women long ago found that the green world of nature provided more than food -it also endowed us with amazing flavors and aromas. Essential Oils hold the life force and vibrational energy of the plants from which they came, and these simple aspects of plants not only enrich our everyday lives, they touch our souls and spiritual formation as well.
Aligning plants and the soul, aromatic alchemy can bring the power of nature to our spiritual and mystical practices. With the ability to bring memories and past feelings to our awareness, aromatics are essential in accessing other realities. Essential Oils can bring that special part of who we are into existence, making us whole and in many cases healing us too.
